The Michigan Wolverines' scoring drought continued Friday night, as they remained winless in their last four contests, dropping a 4-1 decision to visiting Western Michigan at Yost Arena.

Michigan's lone goal - scored by Phil Di Giuseppe with assists from Luke Moffat and Boo Nieves - was just the Wolverines' fifth in their last four games. They skated to a 3-3 tie Dec. 1 at Ferris State, getting the shootout win.

The Broncos went up 3-0 before Di Giuseppe's goal in the second period.

Goaltender Steve Racine stopped 24 of 27 shots in the game for Michigan (5-9-2, 3-7-1-2 CCHA), with the Broncos adding an empty-net goal with 27 seconds left in the game.

Western Michigan, the nation's seventh-ranked team, has won six-straight games. It ran the Wolverines' record against ranked opponents to 1-5 in the 2012 season.

The two teams will face off again at 7:35 p.m. ET Saturday at Yost Arena.
